COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For those of you who dont know who "Scotty Karate" is... He is a local one man band who plays an amazing slurry of honky tonk influenced, punk country songs. His voice is amazing as well as his high energy shows. (Check him out @ www.scottykaratetime.com) So, we decided to make a beer and name it in his honor. This beer is a big, full bodied Scottish ale. It is 9.75% alc. but it is very smooth and balanced. Since Scotty is also very passionate about beer I asked him to write a description for you, so from the man himself... Aroma: Smells like A fresh caramel apple with a hint of cinnamon inside of cranberry shortbread. Or maybe fresh home made hard candy (from home economics class-7th grade). Flavor: Tastes like a smokey chocolate chip cookie, wild roadside cherry-asparagus, woody, crispy leaf on a fall day.

tectactoe (2343) - Michigan, USA - NOV 11, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 Tap: muddled, swampy marsh brown with a beige-ish head that reduced quickly to a film. Aroma is mild nuts, woodsiness, light caramel apple, a touch if grape, & some faint cocoa powder. Surprisingly mild aroma for an almost 10%-er. Taste is light graininess, rye bread, toast, light nuts, a hint of plums & dark fruit esters, & some warm caramel. Alcohol is pretty warm, edges on acetone-like at times. Dry, rye-like finish with heavily toasted bread, light cocoa powder, nuts, & faint woodiness. Not bad... Admittedly, Im just not a huge fan of the style to begin with.

Bottle->tulip. Dark brown with thick lite tan head. A: sweet malt, caramel apple, spices, dark fruit. T: caramel apple, toffee malt, notes of banana and metal on the finish. Pretty good, but the aftertaste gets old. And keep the banana out of my beer.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass a dark brown amber with a light beige head. Aroma is sweet smoke. Flavor is caramelized wood with mild hops covered in breaded candy. Defintely some booziness here. A nice mix of flavor.
